Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia

Sir Antonio Pappano, Music Director and Conductor, Maxim Vengerov, Violin Soloist
Symphony Hall

In his fifteen years at the helm of Rome’s Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Sir Antonio Pappano has breathed new life into the orchestra and cultivated a sound that allows for sweeping drama and fine articulation. Boston audiences were thrilled with the orchestra’s sold-out concert in 2018 and look forward to this rare visit from renowned violinist Maxim Vengerov as a highlight of the season.
